Totally unprofessional IMO

Don't get mad at the crowd if they are not entertained by your poor performance.

Didn't jerry say he was sometime embarrassed because deadheads would cheer anything he did.

Guess those days are far gone.

Do you have any idea what it is like trying to perform when people are talking in your ear? It's nearly impossible to concentrate.

I think I could find a way if people paid to see me play. Furthermore if he can't handle the little venues where you are that up close - don't play them.
He chose to put on the show and take their money.

Just because they paid money doesn't make it okay for them to act like complete assholes. They're not just making his job more difficult, they're bothering the rest of the people who paid money to be there as well. I think walking off the stage is a perfectly reasonable thing to do, especially since he came back on anyway.

I watched the video and didn't see anyone acting like a complete a hole but mr weir

I've heard louder crowds in the middle of a garcia Stella blue

I guess we just disagree

I'm just really not a big fan of any professional walking off, be it musician, athlete or other... Imwishmi could make their wages and complain about my working conditions

Funny I just came upon this

"No matter how bad I was playing, I should have stayed out there"

I guess bob could have said the same thing
